Had a wonderful stay, prime location to visit Crammerock. Pool was lovely and the hosts couldn't have been nicer. If we're in the area, we'll definitely be back!

Had a wonderful stay with our family!
The tent was shaded under the chestnut trees, the site was equipped with all facilities and more! There was a lovely pool for the necessary refreshment! But most importantly, the owners are 2 very sweet, warm people who do everything to make you feel good!

How was the contact with the host?
Went very smoothly

Tips for new guests?
Verbeke Foundation was very close and a nice trip!

With a heat wave we couldn't imagine a better place to stay. Lots of shade under the chestnut trees and the necessary refreshment in the pool.

How was the contact with the host?
Lut and Frans were very cordial hostel. We felt very comfortable and the kids loved it too!

Tips for new guests?
The nearest shop is a short bike ride and we did not take this into account. Not a problem in itself, but it is when it's 35 degrees

Very sweet people who clearly enjoy their guests. Very flexible and social.

Jana

Tell us about your experience
It was our first stay through Campspace, and it immediately hit the mark. The garden is very cozy and well equipped to have a relaxing stay: plenty of tables and chairs, a small fridge, coffee/tea, fire bowl, swimming pool, a separate sanitary area for the campers and even some toys that our son also enjoys had.

How was the contact with the host?
Frans and Lut are very welcoming, friendly and helpful!

Tips for new guests?
The Verbeke Foundation is definitely worth the effort. You can easily walk around there for a few hours, so allow enough time for a visit.
We also took a short walk to the Waterwin area, which is nearby and a beautiful piece of nature.

We hadden een heel leuk en aangenaam verblijf in hun aangename en gezellige tuin.

De zijn super aardige mensen, gezellig en erg meegaand!

Van het zwembad tot het gezellige kampvuur en alles daartussenin, we hebben echt genoten van elke minuut van ons verblijf!



Wij danken u hiervoor!

How was the contact with the host?
Perfect!

Tips for new guests?
1) Geen directe lokale supermarkt in de nabije omgeving.

2) Omdat het dicht bij de grens ligt, is de gsm-verbinding in het gebied niet betrouwbaar.

What a nice reception. We immediately felt completely at home and relaxed. A drink, a dip in the pool, a nice place under the chestnut trees, and especially nice conversations around the campfire about everything. What else do you want?

Lut and Frans are very nice people. We were well taken care of, with coffee, homade ice-tea and even cakes! It was our first campspace adventure and an instant hit! We didn't get out of the garden. It's great with a fun plunge pool, ropes course, swing, kicker, shuffleboard and much more!

Jan

Tell us about your experience
Very nice location to spend the night in the border region.
Ideal to place 2 tents and stay with the children.
In addition to the heated swimming pool, there is table football, table tennis and a ropes course.
The host and hostess will make you feel at home quickly.
A wood fire and a nice chat ensure the coziness!
When it rains, you can take shelter under the covered and heated terrace.
Recommended!

Tell us about your experience
"As our first experience with Campspace, we couldn't desire better. Lut and Frans are amazing people that make you feel immediately welcome. We had the fantastic opportunity to use their garden without other campers - this means having the luxury of using a 28 degrees pool all for yourself, relaxing swinging in the super comfy hammock and having private use of the bathroom downstairs. In the evening we could make use of the fire pit, where it was also possible to make a BBQ for ourselves.

Moreover, we also got some fresh veggies just picked up from their garden, what a treat!"

After a warm welcome by the host we set up our tent in the lovely garden under the trees. Right away we enjoyed the outside pool and read a book swinging in a hammock. High up in the trees you will find a small survival course, so cool! Down the street there is also a forest, which we walked through in the afternoon. When we came back we started the campfire and cooked on the available stove. Until late at night we sat by the fire and chatted to the hosts and other campers. The morning was just as nice, the house has a beautiful bathroom with a large window that views over the garden. There is also a bakery on walking distance with delicious breads. We really came to peace at this lovely spot!

Camping with Frans and Lut is like "coming home". A nice drink is ready, a cup of coffee with breakfast. Frans and Lut are ready with advice and assistance to make it as pleasant as possible for their guests. Even animation has been thought of with a campfire and ropes course. And of course there is the swimming pool as an extra asset. As far as we are concerned, an (h-) fair experience!

Brilliant house, brilliant host. Lut and her husband were very accommodating. Nice quiet area with lots of woodland to explore and a nearby village with Saturday market. We were so blessed by their hospitality and fresh produce from their garden. Their swimming pool is brilliant for our boys. Upon arrival, they greeted us with nice home-brew tea. Highly recommended this place.

We had a super nice experience! The hosts were very hospitable. It was a very warm welcome with cozy chats, a campfire, a coffee in the morning, tasty soup, extra blankets when we were cold etc… In short, the host did everything to make us feel at home and let us experience a good time! Recommended!

We were very well received by Frans and Lutgarde. They immediately made time to explain everything. The garden is large enough, and the children had a good time, especially with the pool and swings. There was a separate shower and toilet for Campspace users. We had a delicious barbecue and afterwards roasted marshmallows on the campfire. We will definitely do it again.

Tell us about your experience
We had a great stay with host Lutgarde in Stekene. They are really lovely and hospitable people that give you all the privacy you need but are also always there if you have questions. Lutgarde really took care of us and the location had everything we needed: tent space under the trees, hammock, great pool and private bathroom. The neighbourhood is residential, so for restaurants or bars you'll need a car or it's about 40min walk minimum.
